centerpiece help

ok so this picture is what i think i want for my centerpieces
only instead of pink water Id use normal clear water One table would have blue flowers and the next table would have purple. 
However, today i made these glitter candle holders I love them i was thinking of doing the above picture and then putting two of the candles on the table with the flower vases. For example Three vases with blue flowers and then two glitter candles that are purple. Then the next table would be the oppisite. 
Do you think that would be too much going on i dont want it to be clashing or too much! I was thinking maybe put the glitter candles on my head table and as decorations through out my venue. 
let me know what you ladies think. If you have any pictures or ideas you think would look better with the glitter candle holder id appreciate it im deff. open to suggestions! thanks in advance

 i would maybe keep the glitter candle holders in the same color family as the flowers so that there is less contrast...unless there are other things on the table or the linens themselves pick up on both colors.  fyi...if you find that the flowers dont look quite right in the vase next to the glitter candle holder, then maybe add some food coloring to the water.  the addition of the food coloring may be enough to blend the two.

I dig the shimmer glitter. Might be too much color with glitter fighting the clear vases with colored flowers on the tables, especially if the flowers are colored. You won't know exact colors till you see the centerpieces day of or when you pickup the flowers and you hope the florist doesn't have to sub out colors.

I like the look of the LED bases underneath the vases, illuminates the flowers and works well with the candles. Gives you a nice pin-spot type of look for for those vases. 

For the glitter I'd do a mix of color and silver and put them on high tops, the bar, place card table. Or mix up the centerpieces with the vases and the other tables with a mix of glitter vases. You'll get the contrast in height and color between tables.

I love those!! I do think there might be a bit too much going on with 4-5  vases on one table. Maybe do 2 water/flower pillars and one glitter candle and then alternate with 2 candles and one pillar? I would keep the colors between both coordinated as well, so keep it all purple or all blue per table, but do differnt tables different colors...make sense?

Love this idea!
